Our Work

The Public Law Project (PLP) is a national legal charity which aims to improve access to public law remedies for those whose access to justice is restricted by poverty or some other form of disadvantage.Within this broad remit PLP has adopted three main objectives:

  • increasing the accountability of public decision-makers

  • enhancing the quality of public decision-making;  

  • improving access to justice.

Uniquely for an organisation of its kind, PLP undertakes research, policy initiatives, casework and training across the range of public law remedies.

PLP has been in the vanguard of constructing the system of public law that now exists in Britain and opening the way for citizens and non-governmental organisations to use the administrative courts. Wrongs have been righted decision-making improved. Without PLP, justice in Britain would be much the poorer.
